The Athena Film Festival at Barnard College is a weekend of inspiring films that tell the extraordinary stories of strong, bold women leaders from all walks of life — stories of ambition, courage, resilience, and moxie. The curated program includes Academy Award-nominated films, top-tier features, documentaries, and shorts — U.S. and world premieres among them. The festival celebrates the stories of remarkable women — stories that need to be told and deserve to be honored.

Katie's always had a love-hate relationship with training thanks to the exhausting, complex, and generous clients that have taught her as much about life as she has taught them how to squat. Confessions of a Personal Trainer takes a deep dive into love and loss at the gym, going behind the scenes of the luxury fitness world and exploring the unconventional relationships that blossom within it.

The Pipeline Festival showcases the work of the celebrated WP Lab residency for playwrights, directors, and producers. The culmination of the two-year residency, the festival provides a unique opportunity for audiences and industry to access five new plays at various stages of development, ranging from staged readings to full-length workshop productions. True to its name, the festival serves as a pipeline to funnel talented female-identified and trans artists and their work to the forefront of American theater.
The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
